The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion




The hilarious, feisty new novel from the internationally bestselling author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe

The hilarious and heartwarming new novel from the author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe

Wisconsin, 1941 - With all the men off to war, Fritzi and her sisters must learn men's work and the All-Girl Filling Station is born, complete with neat little caps, short skirts, and roller-skates. Their peace doesn't last long though: skilled women are needed to fly planes for the war effort.

Alabama, 2005 - Mrs Sookie Earle has just married off the last of her daughters and is looking forward to putting her feet up. But then one day a package arrives. Its contents knock Sookie sideways, propelling her back to the 1940s, and four irrepressible sisters whose wartime adventures force them to reimagine who they are, and what they are capable of.

More heart than a shopful of Valentine cards and some absolutely wonderful characters... A warm, funny riff on family and identity

Wendy Holden, Daily Mail

A wonderfully warm and moving read

Daily Mail

Overwhelmingly heart-warming. [Flagg's] talent for storytelling radiates from the page, along with her ability to create quirky characters who are both immensely entertaining and reassuringly human. A thoroughly enjoyable tale of girl power

Lilly Cox, 4 stars, Lady

A light-hearted and humorous read. Fans of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistlestop Café will also surely be delighted by Flagg's depiction of small-town southern America.
